is low. daphne koller, a computer science professor at stanford, is one of coursera's founders. >> i think by opening up education for free to everyone around the world, they're going to turn education, high-quality education, from a privilege to a basic human right, so that anyone, no matter their social, economic or family circumstances, has access to the best education. >> reporter: those lofty goals-- the experience of teaching thousands of students and the possibility of future profits-- are what got these courses going. professors from top universities are signing up, even though they are not paid by the providers. eventually, universities may share revenues they receive-- when there are revenues-- with the professors. and those star professors have inspired intense student interest in the courses, says coursera's other co-founder, andrew ng. >> most people today will never have access to a princeton, stanford, cal tech class. but now, if you wake up tomorrow morning and you decide you want to take a cal tech class, you can. you can just sign up for one, and it's free. >> repor
in the christian science monitor noted that when he passed in the street, the young men would call out, hello, chris. they knew his face. would laugh and say hello always. this is the right way to deal with our people, he said. libyan friends said he was always ready to put his country first. he shone by being himself, interested in the lives of ordinary people. his death was met with shock and sadness in libya. feelings with regard to americans that are rare in that part of the world these days. for me that judgment captures key characteristics of chris and his approach to life and work. secretary of state hillary clinton noted chris's swearing in as ambassador to libya on an earlier tour, he was visiting roman ruins at one of the tourist sites in libya. he was trailed by gadhafi security men who were obviously intimidating to other tourists. as she recounted it, he reached over to one of the men, stole his camera out of his hands and started taking pictures of the men who had been following him. they were so dumbfounded that they had to laugh. after a quick conversation, chris convinced the
with venture capital money, offering classes in science, technology, engineering, and math. universities came on board, hoping to reach more students than they previously could, and to improve instruction both on and off campus using online technology. thrun says early results are promising. >> we have some data on how work for some of the classes, we've shown that the average point score of students taking those classes online is higher, significantly higher than taking it in the classroom. that's kind of mind-blowing. >> reporter: he says teachers are learning new strategies that are more effective than the traditional lecture. >> it's not my lecturing that changes the student, but it's the student exercise. so our courses feel very much like video games, where you're being bombarded with exercise after exercise. that's very different from the way i teach at stanford, where i'm much more in a lecturing mode. >> porter: at coursera, says online courses aren't dominated by a few aggressive students in a classroom. >> on the online web site, we have these things we call in- video quizzes, wher
than it appears, it's not rocket science? >> and not only maybe not rocket science but ends up being good. in texas, 6% unemployment and that is attributed to the energy boom. they allowed it to happen. on the federal level we are not allowing it to take place. in iowa they have a surplus and the fours they have an unemployment rate. so you can make people's lives better. it makes sense to people in a common sense level but in the federal area not so much. >> neil: i get a lot of e-mail. we had ron johnson on and got heated on and where is your backbone in spending cuts. you have folks saying, you have to realize elections have consequences. the president won. this to say beyond justifying tax hikes, it justified no spending cuts. i don't think that is the americanss saw it. they won't see the math here that hurts democrats and republicans alike if something isn't done? >> here is the question i think the president knows well that this is the question. is california the model we're going to follow? they are $165 billion to $335 billion in debt. they say they might have a surplus beca
killing," science reporter elizabeth rosen hal refused the notion that armed security reduces gun violence. the research? she went to latin america and saw unsafe places had guards in restaurants and stuff. she concludes guards with guns mean more murder. this is a science reporter. as recent magazine notes like explaining the birds and bees to a teen, armed guards might be a response to high homicide rates rather than a cause of them. anyway, we have been here before. relativism which views good and bad behavior is relative, poisons all debate. using rosenthal's office we should disarm the military. clearly their guns lead to more war, i think. this is sometimes reporting. in the times, it makes me wish i were a liberal. then all i say is "x" is bad because "x" is bad. fracking, bad. got no evidence but it has to be bad. spending cuts, that kills grannies, you granny-killer. industry, they use smokestacks, i must do something to stop that. bain capital, even if i don't know what it is. tea party, racist, i have no evidence but c'mon, just look at them. benghazi, more deaths. but you made
science and evidence based drug and alcohol treatment center. where your addiction stops and your new life begins. call now. >>> our fifth story "outfront," shut out by the baseball hall of fame. barr bonds, roger clemens and sammy sosa, all of whom faced accusations of steroid use, were not inducted. only the eighth time that no new player was added. "outfront" tonight, tom berducci. he's the guy who made the decision. i spoke to him and asked him who he voted for. >> tom, sorry, i want to start with barry bonds. 762 home runs, more than anyone else ever. 1,196 rbis. in 2001, a record 73 home runs, more than anyone else ever. the only seven-time mvp in baseball. did you vote for him to join the hall of fame? >> i did not vote for him. it's funny you read off those numbers. i don't even need to know because he was this good. one of those you said that's a hall of famer. well, a hall of fame career, perhaps, but the choice he made to use performance enhancing drugs, to me, that does not define a hall of famer. >> roger clemens, 354 wins, 4, 672 strikeouts, the only seven-time cy young winne

"outfront" tonight, charles blow and former pentagon official, rosa brooks. charles, let me start on this first hilda solis resigning. there's always a lot of turnover. there's one fewer woman in the cabinet.
, we had a lot of science that suggests what the causes may be. but in reality, we don't know for sure. >> reporter: as for cervical cancer, considered by many to be a medical success story due to effective screening methods and early detection, new cases are down, but other hpd related cancers are up, including oral cancers in men and women. >> women in this country are so fortunate to have pap smears readily available to us. hopefully as our medical community moves forward, we'll look toward applying these types of screening techniques toward other types of cancers related to hpv. >> reporter: cancer experts say there is no uniform test for oral hpv, so screening is not routine. dr. powell tells her patients' parents, the hpv vaccine is a critical tool in fighting cancer. the cdc recommends all men and women into their 20s get the hpv vaccine. three doses over the course of at least six months. but for the vaccine to have the greatest benefit, the cdc recommends vaccinating both boys and girls beginning at ages 11 and 12. why so early? the vaccine needs to be given before a young per

. but the key thing is he says science and technology could be a way to improve the economy. from what we've seen on our visits though,, both he and perhaps google's schmidt might have their work cut out for them. one of our earlier visits we were shown what appeared to be an internet center at a library. in fact it was a intranet center. the folks in north korea have almost no access to the real worldwide web and in our last visit, jon, we saw more mobile phones out in the streets but there is a hitch there too. these mobile phones can not connect outside of north korea. in fact they're more dumb than smartphones. however who knows. schmidt might have the idea to get a few more phones, google phones, google tablets google searches in north korea. jon: information wants to be free. greg palkot in london. thank you. jenna: it is a known fact that obesity is not good for your health but seems some risks get more attention than others. a new survey finding while most americans realize carrying too much pounds can contribute to heart disease and diabetes there are other series -- serious cons
: lawrence is a professor of forensic science. cyanide is not easily detected on drug skreengs and a small amount can kill someone. >> it's usually kept under lock and key. again, if you work in the photographic industry, if you worked in a metal processing plant, or you worked in a plant with -- where they work with insecticides, those are places you would find cyanide. >> reporter: soits not all that difficult to obtain? >> it's not that difficult. if somebody wants to get it, they can get it. >> the only thing the chicago police would say on record is they are investigating khan's death as a murder and working closely with the medical examiner. as for the lottery check that had been mailed out, an official with the illinois lottery says records show that the check was cashed several weeks after khan's death. wolf? >> mary snow, thanks very much. >>> and you're in "the situation room." happening right now, tens and thousands of lives potentially at risk in what could be the worst flu season here in the united states in years. a leading doctor tells me, though, it's not too late to protec

, of evidence, of science and they're willing to engage in behavior that a generation ago we would have said is just beyond the pail. that is take the country's public credit and risk a default to get their way. >> so, if what you say is right, what are these organizations afraid of? >> i think there's a deep fear, first, of being attached to a liberal bias. you know -- >> most people do think the press does lean to the left. >> the main stream media want to do everything they can to avoid any reinforcement of that. i actually think now, you know, there is a fall back on a refuge on television more than anything else that is, you know, if we're like the law and we present advocates from one side and advocates from the other. then everything is fine. so, if you represent 99.5% of scientists on climate change with one person and a half a percent with the other side, you're fine with that. i also think, frankly, advertisers now are unhappy if there is any sense of bias, as well. the old wall between publishers and advertisers and editors and reporters on the other is not quite a firm wall any m
